My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Multidisciplinary Association For Psychedelic Studies, Santa Cruz, CA, USA
I support MAPS because I believe wholeheartedly in the benefits of psychedelics if used purposefully and mindfully as tools for healing. As a 25 year old who has suffered from OCD, PTSD and depression for much of their life, and having tried different medications and psychotherapies with only short term relief that came with many side effects, it was only after my first use of LSD in a healing environment (a forest, with loved ones), did I truly feel capable of understanding and approaching complete management and recovery. I understood my own reality and experiences in a way I had never done so before. The same (although slightly different) profound healing moments occurred with MDMA, psilocybin and mescaline. I have and only will go on these journeys a handful of times in my life, but that is all that is needed. If you truly desire release from your demons and are willing to hold onto the lessons that psychedelics have to offer, I fully believe that they are capable of assisting you greatly. Thank you, MAPS, for raising awareness and conducting research into the benefits of these fascinating chemical angels.
